Among members of Indiewire's Criticwire network, "The Raid: Redemption" first started gathering steam when it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last September. To date, Gareth Evans' tale of an Indonesian SWAT team that must take on a high-rise building teeming with dangerous criminals has inspired some of the most enthusiastic and effusive praise of the year. With an aggregate grade of A- from Criticwire members on the brink of its Friday release, it's the Criticwire Pick of the Week.
